A New Jersey high school has come under criticism for digitally removing Donald Trump logos from two students' yearbook photos and removed a quote by Trump set to appear under the freshman class president's photo.

Wall Township High School junior Grant Berardo was disappointed to see that the "Trump: Make America Great Again" text on his shirt was no longer there; the logo was there in the photo proofs in November, according to a report from CNN.

"He was disappointed. This was the first election he has been interested in," Berardo's father said.

He wants the yearbooks reissued and an apology.

A Trump logo was also missing from junior Wyatt Dobrovich-Fago's vest. And a quote by Trump, "I like thinking big. If you are going to be thinking anything, you might as well think big," was missing from his sister Montana's freshman class president photo.

Wall Township Public Schools Superintendent Cheryl Dyer sent a letter to parents saying she was investigating.

"The high school administration was not aware of and does not condone any censorship of political views on the part of our students. This includes statements that they might make or clothing with references to candidates for public office that they might wear," she said.

"The school's dress code does prohibit references to illegal activity such as use of drugs, alcohol or weapons," the letter also said.

There hasn't been evidence of similar changes to pro-Clinton or Sanders shirts.

Both families plan on meeting with the principal and the yearbook adviser this week.
